Eating Tips: Regular Meals

for Veterans and the Public

Eat regular, balanced meals - Hepatitis C for Patients

Eating regularly means eating at least 3 meals a day. One way to keep your energy level up is to eat small meals or snacks at least every 3 to 4 hours.

If you are currently on hepatitis C treatment, eating often also can help prevent nausea, which is sometimes a side effect of the medicine.

Balanced meals include a variety of foods from all 4 food groups:

  • Whole-grain breads, cereals, and grains
  • Vegetables and fruits
  • Dairy products
  • Meats, fish, dried beans, soy, nuts, and eggs

Each of these food groups gives you important nutrients.
